Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Today was my first attempt at making prime rib. I was wrestling with what to prepare for dinner this holiday. We had ham at Thanksgiving so another one just didn’t sound appealing despite the fact that I LOVE ham… I was waffling between beef and lamb but couldn’t make up my mind. Xmas eve, I ventured to our local Bristol Farms where the guy behind the meat counter talked me into rib roast. I had entertained the thought of prime rib so this decided it.

I seasoned it with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
This gorgeous hunk of meat came out perfect at a medium rare/medium after about an hour and a half (15mins @ 500F and then however long it took to get the meat thermometer to read 130F @ 325F). Accompanied by seasoned roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts, Husband and a friend gave it two thumbs up.

I’m rather proud right now… And full.
